All to bed at night. Realistic daily routine

16
It would be nice to have a realistic daily routine for our villagers. This means that at night everyone goes back to their homes to bed.
At sunrise, the villagers are awakened by the chickens clucking (if there) and go to work. They may come back home for lunch break.
In the evening, after a hard day of work they gather at the tavern or go straight home, by the fireplace.
Beds, chairs etc.. should be there in the houses.

One could then appreciate the real life experience of our villagers.
The daytime speed would go slower, night time (where nothing happens, except for wolves hanging around your town and pasture) can be set in fastforward.

    This.

    And:
    Since we already have a day/night cycle, how about improving simulation? The villagers could walk like 20 kilometres in a day, however to build a house, they would need 5-6 months. They would also need to visit home 2-3 times a day (for meals etc.) and get back home before nightfall.

    Sickness will be an issue, as people will have less time in a day to work, also older guys will work less in a day, but they will make less mistakes.

    When it comes to time speed, we would need more than what there is now - 1x 2x 5x and 10x time. We could use speeds like 1s real time = 1s in game, 1s = 5s, 1s = 1m, 1s = 5m, 1s = 1h, 1s = 4h. This would mean that on high speed only key stages of the simulation will be rendered (like crop growth, building stages finishing etc.), and actual positions of villagers would only be visible on lower speeds.

    I agree this would be great addition to give it that extra realism.
